Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2020 has been cancelled, following the South Australian Government’s declaration of a public health emergency, and ban on non-essential gatherings of 100 people or more at indoor premises including Adelaide Festival Centre.

In response to the unfolding health situation, Theatre Works have made the difficult but necessary decision to temporarily close our venue until 1 May.

Declan Greene, Karen Rodgers, and the Board of Griffin Theatre Company have today announced the temporary closure of the SBW Stables Theatre.

Scheduled to be programmed this winter, the Melbourne International Jazz Festival (MIJF) in its current form will be cancelled in response to ongoing developments regarding the threat of COVID-19.

Following the meeting of the National Cabinet and the Prime Minister’s direction on Sunday, QPAC will be closed until Thursday 30 April, 2020.

Following the declaration of a Public Health Emergency in South Australia, Adelaide Festival Centre venues will close to the public and all performances will be suspended from midnight until the 30th of April.

In response to the ban imposed by the Victorian State Government, MSO regret that all concerts between Monday 16 March and Monday 13 April, inclusive, will not proceed.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation and in the interest of the health and safety of our audiences, artists and the broader community, Melbourne Theatre Company has today announced the cancellation of all remaining performances of Torch the Place and Emerald City, effective from Monday 16 March.
